We have used GraphicConverter for 20 years. It like a universal toolbox for photo editing and image management on the Mac.

We use it for sorting thousands of images of all different formats and types. It can open and save a huge range of image types from the common to the really obscure. If we cant open an image in another app theres a good chance GraphicConverter will open it somehow.

Incredibly useful are the actions available in the image folder browser. Renaming images based on the image format is invaluable to us as is sorting images into folders by date taken. We find it useful for cleaning up metadata and captions too.

We needed help with a feature of the non App Store version of the app when we were working over Christmas. We emailed the developer on Xmas eve. He replied on Xmas day and spent loads of time both emailing and working on the software to tweak it. On Boxing Day he sent us a link to a version that had the tweaks implemented to do exactly what we needed. Amazing support.

We recommend GraphicConverter so highly not just because its an amazing tool, doing pretty much anything you can imagine to your images, but because its rare to find a developer who has spent so many years keeping a product so up to date with developments in imaging. We can’t fault the excellent support from Thorsten. To make a new version of an App over Christmas to provide a solution to their customer is pretty damn good.

Although it is fair to say File Buddy isn't updated often, after we purchased the v10 beta which had issues with duplicate detection we emailed the developer and explained this was a big issue. Within a day Larry emailed back working to fix the issue and a day later sent us a fixed version recompiled for Mavericks.

Skytag have now released this as v10.0.0 and it successfully searches for duplicates exceptionally quickly and with support for the stand alone droplets too.

File Buddy still is the best general purpose file utility tool. Now the issues from 10b2 have been fixed it is back in the top spot in our arsenal of utility tools on our Mac.

If we only ever bought one piece of software for our Mac this is what we would choose.

We have no connection with the dev. We are just a satisfied customer since the very early days. We are just pleased the software is now working again with the latest Mac OS :-)

@kobalt It was a figure of speech.. as in.. If you could choose one commercial app what would you choose? We use File Buddy almost exclusively for eliminating duplicate images and document files from our Mac. We would have a great use for it even on a Mac with the complementary Apple software or free open source software.. but as it transpires it isn't the only software we have bought because there's a theoretical 'if' prefixing the sentence :-) x
